Austin Rivers riding the bench for Pelicans
After the first six games, New Orleans Pelicans combo guard Austin Rivers has barely got off the bench because of the teamís improved depth at both guard spots.
He didnít play in two of the first three games, and during Fridayís 96-85 victory against the Lakers, Rivers didnít enter until 8.7 seconds remained.
Coach Monty Williams acknowledged before Sunday nightís game against the Phoenix Suns that Rivers, the 10th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, is in a tough spot.
